Zotac GeForce GTX 680 4GB

Why You'll Dig it:

Experience game-changing performance with the amplified Zotac GeForce GTX 680 4GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 AMP! Edition Graphics Card. Powered by the powerful GeForce architecture, it redefines smooth, seamless and lifelike gaming. It raises the performance bar with NVIDIA GPU Boost technology that maximizes clock speeds on the fly for maximum performance in every gaming scenario. NVIDIA Adaptive Vertical Sync technology adapts the monitor's vertical sync dramatically to current frame rates for maximum gaming smoothness and playability. Take your gaming experience to the next level with NVIDIA Surround technology for an unmatched immersive gaming experience.

To stand a chance in any PvP scenario, you need a graphics card that won’t fail at frames when it matters most. Big, widescreen displays are the standard now, so to push the necessary pixels in most modern games, getting a GPU with enough horsepower is your top priority. Because Crazy 8 was destined to be a respectable gaming rig, this was our top priority, too.

Based on the success of the LAN Party Boxster, we went back to ZOTAC to find a quality thoroughbred from the company’s stables. In the end, we decided on the GeForce GTX 680 4GB, a card with plenty of Kepler kick, a modest factory overclock, and a super-sized frame buffer to boot.

The GK104 GPU at the heart of the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 680 4GB has been one of the dominant forces in PC gaming. The GTX 680 boasts 1,536 CUDA cores and a base clock of 1,006MHz, the GTX 670 has 1,344 CUDA cores at its disposal, as well as a base clock of 915MHz.

As far as that memory subsystem is concerned, if you haven’t already guessed by now, it’s significant that ZOTAC took the time to mention this GTX 680’s frame buffer size right in the product name. At 4GB, the GeForce GTX 680 4GB offers twice as much VRAM as the standard GTX 670. That extra frame buffer should come in handy when you want to run games at high resolutions and then set all the visual effects dials to "Insane".

The ZOTAC GeForce GTX 680 4GB has the necessary muscle for your 3D heavy lifting. Whether as a single card or the first half of a future SLI setup, it gives gamers that vital edge necessary to dominate.
